other cars can along included a motorcyclist, he probably did not see it may be going too fast. however that motorcyclist probably fell to the ground after avoiding the disabled car, it looks like he was run over. the traffic is slowly being diverted to the two right lanes, on northbound. it took me at least, 35 minutes to go about 2 mi., the backups started on 92, all four lanes stop at that time, it has slowly trickle ahead, during my drive here, it got really slow. you see these two cars, they had to get through the no. 1 labor force in traffic to move over. that caused more confusion and congestion. very slow going, just to avoid this altogether if
